Sun Coast Bariatrics offers a state-of-the-art surgical option for patients seeking a faster surgical recovery time and minimal scarring. Using daVinci® robotic surgery, Dr. Jessee and her talented support staff are able to perform bariatric weight loss surgery with a greater degree of precision, dexterity, and control. Additionally, robotic assistance offers an improved range of vision during laparoscopic procedures compared to traditional surgical procedures.
daVinci® robotic surgery allows surgeons to make fewer, smaller incisions, resulting in a faster recovery time, a shorter hospital stay, less blood loss, and minimal long-term scarring.
Safe and Tested
Robot-assisted bariatric surgery has a proven track record of success. Dr. Jessee has performed hundreds of successful surgeries with this tool and most patients opt for this advanced surgical option when available. At present, robotic surgery is limited to Gastric Band Surgery and Gastric Sleeve Surgery.
However, the daVinci® robot is not a limited tool. Surgeons are continually discovering new ways to the daVinci robot in surgical procedures.
Our own Dr. Tiffany Jessee was the first to install an Adjustable Gastric Band using the daVinci® robot.
